I loved this little device the first time I saw it in Jurassic Park. When I was a kid, my favorite part of the Imperial War Museum in London was the espionage exhibit. Filled with little surveillance devices disguised as innocuous common-day items, it was enough to make a young man’s imagination run wild.
Not that you care, and not that Barbasol gives any support to this site (call me Pfizer), but I still shave with Barbasol to this day. I attribute it to first seeing the can in Jurassic Park.
Well now Chronicle Collectibles have taken it upon themselves to build a somewhat functional replica (minus the shaving cream dispensing) for Jurassic super-fans.
The Cry-Can retails for $200 through Sideshow Collectibles and is slated for an October to December 2020 release. Just in time for that Dino-nut’s holiday present, right?!
There is also a Chronicle Collectibles exclusive edition. Direct orders from the Chronicle Collectibles site will receive Dennis Nedry’s park access badge.

ABOUT THIS PROP REPLICA
“What are you trying to look like, a secret agent?”
When engaging in corporate espionage, you need to have a fool proof plan. Especially when the company you are trying to steal from is genetics leader InGen. Fortunately, Dodgson, from rival company BioSyn, has planned accordingly. The result — a self-contained transport mechanism for 15 fertilized embryos, fully cooled* and compartmentalized inside, and encased within the innocuous facade of a common can of Barbasol™ shaving cream.
The device was a stroke of genius – a very real coup in the exciting world of corporate theft. And the plan was flawless. Sadly, Dodgson’s man on the inside at InGen, the disgruntled Dennis Nedry, wasn’t so flawless –The device was lost, along with all 15 embryos.
Or so the world thought. A team of artists from Chronicle Collectibles recently managed to gain access to this genuine artifact, which was somehow found and rescued from the InGen site before the island’s destruction by volcanic eruption. All of the embryos were irretrievably lost, and the clever bit of the device that enabled it to emit actual shaving cream was damaged beyond recognition. But the structure itself remained intact.
Emboldened by this unprecedented and unique access, those artists have successfully replicated the device’s structure as an homage to the efforts of Dodgson’s ingenious plan. Thus, Chronicle Collectibles is now pleased to present to the world the Jurassic Park Cryo-Can. Quantities are limited, so reserve yours today!
